How beautiful to see the paradise of God


What is a paradise made of?

Narrated Abu Huraira: I once asked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): O Messenger of Allaah, what is Paradise made of?

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) replied: Paradise is made of a brick of gold and a brick of silver, and its spice (with which the brick is attached) is a strong fragrant mesh. Precious gem-free is its gravel. Saffron is its soil. Whoever enters Paradise once will enjoy the blessings of Paradise forever.

He will never miss (anything). They will live forever. Death will not touch them. The clothes of the people of Paradise will never be worn out. Their youth will never wane. (Ahmad and Tirmidhi) 

The breadth of Paradise

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

سـابـقـوا إلـى مـغـفـرة مـن زيـكـم وجـة عـرضـهـاكـعـرض السماء والأرض أعدت للذين أمنوا بالله ورسله 

That is, seek forgiveness of your Lord, and hasten to Paradise as wide as the heavens and the earth, which has been created.

In fact, Paradise is the name of a huge place. Its vastness can be inferred from the vast paradise given to an ordinary Jannat (Surah Hadid). According to some hadiths, an ordinary person in Paradise will be able to see his blessings in a thousand years. 

According to another hadith, the amount of space given to an ordinary Jannat will be equal to ten times more than the whole earth and the earth itself. All this has been asked to make the listeners understand. 

The tranquility of Paradise has been compared to the vastness of the heavens and the earth to give people a general idea of ​​Paiserad.

It has been said in Surah Ale Imran

عرضها السموات والأرض

That is, the breadth of Paradise is like the heavens and the earth. In this verse, the Arabic word for sky is plural. That is, the breadth of Paradise is equal to all the heavens and the earth.

Narrated Abu Saeed: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: There are one hundred levels in Paradise. If people worldwide come together on one level, there will be no shortage of space.

The gates of paradise

Hadrat 'Umar bin Khattab (may Allaah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: The eight gates of Paradise will be opened for one of you who performs ablution and recites the following two verses.

He can enter Paradise through any door he wants. (Muslim) There are two

 أشهد أن لاإله إلالله وحده لاشريك له وأشهد أن محتدا

This hadith proves that the gates of Paradise are eight in all,

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: A person who seeks two things of the same kind in the way of Allaah (such as two silver coins, two gold coins, two takas, two He will be called to Paradise saying, "Come to the servant of Allah, that is better.

The one who was praying will be called through the door of prayer, and the one who was a mujahid will be called through the door of jihad. The giver of charity will be called through the door of charity.

And the fasting person will be called Babu Ryan.

Hadith does not mean that he will be called to enter Paradise only if he goes down or fasts or does jihad or gives alms, excluding all other acts of worship. 

Rather, it means that in addition to performing all the acts of worship properly, the person who pays special attention to the acts of worship will be called through the door of that act of worship.

Hearing this, Hazrat Abu Bakr (R) asked, O Messenger of Allah! May my parents be devoted to you. There is no need to call anyone through all the doors. 

Because the real purpose is to enter Paradise, and it can be done through one door, but even after that, I am asking whether one will be called (in honor) through all the doors. 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) replied, 'Yes (there will be such a person), I hope you will belong to them.

Allama Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani, the author of Fath al-Bari, a commentary on Bukhari, said: The above hadith indicates the four gates of Paradise. 

That is- (1) Babus Salat (Door of Prayer) (2) Babul Jihad (Door of Jihad) (3) Babus Sadaqat (Door of Charity) (4) Babur Ryan (Door of Satisfaction) Then he writes without a doubt. (5) There will be a drawer called Babul Hajj. (6) There would be another one for them. 

There is a hadith in Musnad Ahmad about this. (6) - Another door called 31 will come for those who have full reliance on Mallam. They will enter through this door without any punishment. (6) Babuya Zikr. 

This door has been pointed out in a hadith of Tirmidhi Sharif. Moreover, there is a possibility that the door will be Babul Ilam without mentioning Babuz.  

Then he writes that there is a possibility that all the discussions about the dignity and superiority of Hazrat Abu Bakr (R) are internal doors except the main gates. 

Because honest work is much more than eight. If every good deed has one door, I want to have many doors. So the rationale is that the door to good work is the inner door. 

Hazrat Utbah bin Gawan (R), the Governor of Basra, once said while giving Khuba, "Undoubtedly, you will one day reach a world from which you do not have to go anywhere else. 

So get out of here with good deeds. "We are told that there will be a gap of forty years between the two gates of Paradise," he added. 

And a day will certainly come when even such a large door will become narrow in the midst of a huge crowd of entrants. (Muslim Sharif)

There is a hadith of Bukhari and Muslim, I swear by the Prophet (peace be upon him) Irshad Sattu in whose hand my life, the distance between the two gates of Paradise will be as wide as between Mecca and Hijjah. (Attargib Wattarhib) The founder of Mazmaul Bihar said that Hijr is the capital of Bahrain.

The width of the gates of Paradise was known by these two hadiths. The first hadith says that the distance between the two gates of Paradise is forty years, and the distance between the gates of Paradise is compared with the distance between Mecca and Hijra. 

The fact is that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to say this to the listeners, sometimes in this way and sometimes differently. However, the width of the gates of Paradise is certainly very high, just like the doors of a house.

Hazrat Sahl bin Sa'd (R) narrates that the Prophet (SAW) said, "Of course, seventy thousand of my ummah or he said) seven lakh people will enter Paradise holding hands with each other." Their (Qatar's) first person will not enter before the last person. (That is, the gates of Paradise will be so wide that the people of Qatar will enter one after the other at the same time. Then he said that their faces will continue to shine like a full moon.
